Introducing Circular Economy in Azerbaijan: building on implementing the Resource Efficient and Cleaner Production in manufacturing enterprises

As part of the activities on Resource Efficient and Cleaner Production (RECP) under the EU4Environment Action funded by the European Union, UNIDO organizes a national conference on 13 May 2024.

The event is hosted in a hybrid format (in person and online) in both English and Azerbaijani (with simultaneous interpretation).

Participants can register through this link.


The conference aims to highlight and promote resilience and green growth in Azerbaijani enterprises by showcasing the benefits of Resource Efficient and Cleaner Production (RECP) in the transition to a Circular Economy. Additionally, the event will provide an opportunity to discuss and share experiences, tools, and programmes on greening Azerbaijani Small and Medium Sized Enterprises (SMEs) through six sessions.


The target audience is comprised of stakeholders engaged in green economic development in Azerbaijan, including Government, international, and civil society organizations. It is also organised to engage representatives of MSMEs, including industrial enterprises; businesses, experts in the fields of engineering (chemical, industrial, environmental) and energy; members of academia, as well as practitioners from EU4Environment (2021-2024) and EaP GREEN (2013-2017) Actions (RECP Clubs’ members and RECP Demonstration Companies, RECP experts). The tentative number of in-person participants is about 80 persons and online is unlimited.


Resource Efficient and Cleaner Production (RECP) is an umbrella term used for the application of preventative environmental strategies to processes, goods, and services to improve the industrial sector’s efficiency and lower risks to people and the environment. UNIDO developed the RECP methodology to assist enterprises in identifying, evaluating, and reducing their resource usage while eradicating losses, increasing resilience, and enhancing productivity and competitiveness.
